Escaping Her Islamic Bloodline, Marie Muhammad Now Preaches the Gospel for Jesus

Marie Muhammad is intimately familiar with overcoming the "shipwrecks" of life.

As the great granddaughter of Elijah Muhammad, the founder of the Nation of Islam, Marie became ostracized from her family when she shunned their religion to become a follower of Jesus Christ and receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit at age 17.

She endured an abusive and adulterous marriage, a heart-wrenching abortion and poverty. But the Holy Spirit never left her side and Muhammad is now serving the Lord with fervor and determination. She preaches to others of similar circumstances to let them know that Jesus is the only way to salvation.

Prophetic Pastor Chris Reed to Succeed Rick Joyner as CEO of MorningStar Ministries

Spiritually, MorningStar Ministries Founder Rick Joyner connected with Pastor Chris Reed right from the start. From the time the two met in the Spring of 2020, both realized they had the same ministry vision and the same vision for what God was going to do worldwide in the near future.

It comes as little surprise then that Reed, lead pastor of Apostolic Revival Center in Peru, Indiana, has agreed to take over as his Joyner's successor at MorningStar in Fort Mill, South Carolina, beginning at the end of June.

The two met through a mutual friend and Joyner knew immediately that Reed, who was chosen as the pastor at Apostolic Revival Center 12 years ago at the tender age of 25, was the man to hand the reins of his ministry to when he decided to step down.

Lauren Daigle Wows Audiences—Again—On 'The Voice' Season Finale

Lauren Daigle wowed audience members with a special performance of "Hold On to Me" in the season finale of hit TV musical competition, The Voice.

The 29-year-old singer proclaimed, "There is hope for the world, all you gotta do is hold on," during an improvised section of her newest single, leaving the crowd and The Voice participants saying, "Lauren Daigle never fails to inspire us."

Backed by a velvet robe-clad choir, Daigle sang her newest soulful single for the first time on live television. "Hold On to Me" was released in February, and serves as a reminder that reconciliation is possible, and the God of hope is able to restore any situation. The song's release partnered with four organizations focused on healing "wounds and injustices."
